Dude is sick for sure. Very entertaining videos.

When you get to that level of riding, you're gonna be nasty regardless of your equipment. Good equipment will help of course, but that guy could outride me on a beat up old delamed Simms.

Even back when I was younger, I wouldn't have the balls to try flips on a rail let alone now I'm older with a lot more responsibilities. But, just out of curiosity, which one is harder to do? Backflip on, or frontflip on?

It's pretty obvious that either way is going to be ridiculously hard. But I'd say the backflip is harder though because its harder to get the rotation started and takes more time to complete the rotation.

It's actually the other way around. I made a thread about this a while ago.

maybe on a jump but to a rail i think a front flip would be way easier cause you can pop off your nose more to get it around faster.

Front flips are more difficult. They require more strength to torque your way around (you have you snap your shoulders and chest over pretty damned hard, even without a snowboard under you), and the landing is blind.

Back flips are easier because we use the largest muscles in our bodies (butt, legs, abs) to generate the momentum.

Ask anyone who has ever been a gymnast and they will tell you that back tumbling/flipping is the easier skill.
